5 of the Best Moments from the ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner’


The American media was front and center at Samantha Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday. The event fell on the same night as the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which President Trump did not attend. “You’re basically the Presidential version of the Fyre Festival,” Bee concluded about the Orange One during the special. Bee, the host of TBS’s Full Frontal, raised $200,000 from the evening for the Committee to Protect Journalists. She wore suffragette white and decked her staff out in “Free Press” tees for the night. See the best jokes from last night’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and watch Bee and company roast the Trump Administration, below.

Allison Janney reprised her role as West Wing press secretary C.J. Cregg and confirmed that all women are powerful, badass witches.

Jake Tapper got really upset about the lack of dinner at the Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The Committee to Protect Journalists got real: “Imagine if our media weren’t there for us to shit on.”

The spirit of Philip K. Dick was present during a “Woman in the High Castle” joke, in which Bee imagined performing at Hillary Clinton’s first White House Correspondents’ Dinner (complete with a “Bill O’Reilly’s been caught masturbating” joke).

Will Ferrell brought his Dubya impression back.
